The text below the images of the juggling banjos act reads: "There are some amazing feats performed by Mr. Franco Piper, king of the banjoists. Whilst throwing his banjos in the air as nonchalantly as Cinquevalli does a set of billiard balls , this remarkable player contrives to extract the most exquisite melodies from the whirling instruments."
The Showman of Friday 11 October 1901 reports: 'Mr. Franco Piper, the remarkable banjoist, whose prowess with his favourite instruments we have had occasion to call attention to before, tells us that he will shortly introduce a new trick of unparalleled difficulty. He says that he will juggle with six banjos, snatching a tune from them, as they speed though the air. He plays the seconds with his left hand, and firsts with his right, the little finger doing most of the work. Mr. Piper when performing this part of his programme will have a committee of the audience on the stage to ensure there being no deception in the experiment, such as playing behind the scenes, or the manipulation of a musical box."
